3 Considerations for a Faster Home Sale

If you want to sell your home more quickly, consider the following factors:


Price

Buyers want a good price for their investment, which is why well-priced properties get more attention than overpriced ones. What's more, since a home gets the most attention during its first three weeks on the market, if you overprice, you could miss your opportunity. A better strategy is to be slightly underpriced -- this will attract more buyers, which will lead to competitive bidding that drives up the price.

Condition

The better condition your home is in, the more attractive it will be to prospective buyers, so be sure to assess its condition and make any needed upgrades. Small measures like repainting and light landscaping can go a long way toward maximizing your home's appeal.

Availability

More showings get more buyers in the door and garner more offers, so if you're motivated to sell, you should be prepared for immediate showings. If you're more flexible to showings, there's a better chance your home will sell quickly.

Brexit, Negative Yields & Real Property

There are now $8.73 trillion of securities with yields below zero globally, according to the Bloomberg World Sovereign Bond Indexes

up from $8.35 trillion before the vote. In the euro-area, German benchmark bonds with maturities out to 10 years are negative, while Japanese 10-year yields reached a record-low of minus 0.215 percent on Friday.

 

The Historically low interest rates we have seen in the last 7 years are directly related to low yielding central bank bonds.  Thoughtful Real Property investments generate solid cash on cash returns and provide considerable investor safety.  

We are here to answer any questions you have regarding which investments make the most sense for you.

Best time to Buy in several months

We are tracking several statistics in the marketplace and are seeing better buying opportunities now than in the past several months.  Call us to discuss how these stats may affect your purchasing or selling plans.

Compared to this time last year both the Days on Market and the Sales Price to List Price Ratio are better for Buyers.

 

New Listings are continuing to outpace new sales and inventory is growing. Buyers are finding it easier to get into contract on the home they desire with less competition.  

Sellers are still able to sell quickly and with good terms if their home is in priced well and compares favorably on condition.
